Study and Identification of Fungal and Bacterial Causing Contamination of Some Local Dairy Products in Basra City of Iraq
This study was conducted on some microbial contaminants of white cheese and its derivatives circulating in the markets of the city of Basra, specifically the popular areas, and assessing their health through their compliance with health standards.
Aim of study : Studying and identifying the fungal and bacterial that cause contamination of some local dairy products and ways to prevent them.
Results: : Results: 2 types of bacteria were isolated and diagnosed, and 3 types of fungi were isolated from local dairy products. 11 out of 20 samples were contaminated with bacteria. 45% of the bacteria isolates were Gram-negative and 55% were Gram-positive.
Bacteria isolates Escherichia coli , Staphylococcus and Alternaria alternate , Aspergillus niger , Candida albicans predominated in all products.
This study shows that the local dairy products that were studied were contaminated with pathogenic microorganisms, during the study period from (January to March) 2023.
